Springboard KS3 Science

We’re delighted to announce that Hodder’s brand new KS3 Science suite of resources, Springboard is now published. This revolutionary and research-informed series is designed to ensure pupils progress through the KS3 curriculum with confidence and fluency.  

Cover all the knowledge that students need to know for Key Stage 3 Science in one book.

Powered by cognitive science principles, this knowledge-rich book enables students to keep revisiting content, see the links between the sciences, and develop deeper understanding. 

Hodder’s expert author team have used their extensive experience of research-informed teaching practice to create this carefully thought-out Knowledge Book. It will establish and embed the key scientific knowledge and skills that students need to succeed at KS3, ensuring they feel enthused and confident about progressing to GCSE. 

  • Take a new approach to KS3 Science. This Knowledge Book sequences the National Curriculum with unprecedented precision, enabling students to progress through KS3 with ease and fluency. 
  • Reduce cognitive load. Every topic is explained through a succinct and focused table of questions and answers, which captures all the essential knowledge that pupils need. 
  • Use visual aids to further understanding. Complex topics are paired with annotated diagrams, and worked examples are provided to illustrate key skills and calculations in further detail. 
  • Strengthen scientific skills throughout. ‘Working Scientifically’ pages integrate principles and concepts into students’ understanding, using questions and answers, diagrams, tables and more. 

Get in touch for sample pages, orders and find here out more about this fantastic programme.

Coming soon: In summer 2024, a one-day workshop delivered by Adam Boxer will explore evidence based strategies to support KS3 science and the implementation of the Springboard Science approach!  Get in touch for more information.
